Summary of project:

“Michael Coyne was welcomed by the people of Numurkah who were keen to tell their story. His pictures capture a town that is open and generous, not closed and fearful. At a time when we urgently need to think in new ways about future directions for Australian society, we are enriched by the generosity of those who accepted to be photographed and by Michael Coyne’s gift of capturing voice and  silence, colour and shadow in a single image.”
